Lets face it: Foodwise, Thanksgiving, not Christmas, is the holiday thats about hours of stirring pots and basting turkeys in a hot kitchen. After all, youve spent the past few weeks with your elbow in some other holiday shoppers rib cage, or with your foot on someones neck while you fight for that last PlayStation 3. When Christmas dinner comes around, taking it easy is definitely on the menu. And Acqua, the signature restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel, has just what Santa ordered: a five-course, chef-prepared meal featuring cuisine that will take your palate on a magical sleigh ride around the world. If roast duck with morel and sweetbread stuffing, seared scallop with truffled cauliflower purée, and a dark chocolate Caribbean caramel vanilla yule log are on your Christmas list, then you can get your fill tonight from 6:30 to 9:00. The cost is $80 per person. Call 305-381-3040 for reservations.
